Romano: Caddis Fly "Sculpture"

I picked up the latest issue of The Drake at a fly shop yesterday and discovered a gentleman named Hubert Duprat that removes caddis larvae from their casings, dumps in precious stones, jewels, and some gold for good measure. He lets them do their thing for a while and viola! Caddis fly sculpture. And we complain about the price of hackle. Be sure to check out the video at the end of the post. - TR
